From the Sideline

“Alerjah has been a consistent force this season. She has consistently been one of the best defenders in our league, guarding our opponent’s best guard in every game. She has also been an improved weapon offensively as she has led multiple fourth-quarter comebacks with her defense, leading to easy (offensive production) late in games. Alerjah has a wonderful team-first attitude, and her quiet leadership and consistent effort make her a critical piece of our success this season.”
